Dell Command Update

Dell Command is a driver update tool that comes with a Dell computer system. You can run the tool via command line. Awesome!

Note that this is in v2.3/v2.4 and not in the newest v3.0... Yikes!

SIMPLE DELL COMMAND UPDATE

cd c:\program files (x86)\Dell\CommandUpdate

dcu-cli.exe

It will go through find the drivers, download them and install them automatically.

Because this is via command line, this can be pushed out through the entire network.

ADVANCED DELL COMMAND UPDATE

Now Dell releases all in one driver packs (aka CAB files) for their business systems (Latitude, Precision, etc). You can download the CAB file in a central location and roll out the CAB file to the system (be certain to choose the right CAB file and match the CAB file name to the model number):

dcu-cli.exe" /driverRestore \\MyServer\MyRepositoryShare\E7470-win10-A11-F4MTJ.CAB
